So last month on instagram (you can find me here: @lyssadawson) everyone and their mom was doing the 5 things post. I’m the kind of person that never gets picked for things like this and I was definitely perturbed that no one ever picked me.
I know, wahh wahh.
In the end my sil did pick me, but I forgot to actually do the post.
So, I thought it would be fun to also post it on the blog!

I can touch my tongue to my nose, but it’s not a pretty sight when I do. Sometimes it reminds me of the bitter beer man… yeah.

Throughout my young life, before I got married, I always slept with the blankets untucked from the matress. If they weren’t untucked I couldn’t fall asleep. I liked to have them wrapped around my feet to keep me extra warm.

In 7th and 8th grade I was captain of the volleyball team. Freshman year of high school I wasn’t told about volleyball tryouts so I missed them and had to hang up the knee pads and booty shorts for a seat on the bleachers.

I once was obsessed with Shia LaBeouf, I had a whole book that was dedicated to the movie Holes and Even Stevens only because he was in them. You could have called it creepy because it was. Just a note, this was before the creepy beard and long hair era.

When I was 12 I had just moved to a new house and a new ward. I left all my friends that I had known for 8 years and had to find a way to make new ones, but I was shy. At my new ward I was made fun of, no one ever sat by me, and no one wanted to be my friend until one day when I was leaving church. I was walking out of the church and to the car when I told my mom that I didn’t want to go to church anymore because everyone was so mean. Moments later I hear one of the older girls calling my name, she gave me something and told me that she was glad to have me in young womens and that she wanted to sit by me next week in church. This is one of the first of many experiences where I knew my Heavenly Father was looking out for me, that He was really there and that he wanted to know I was of great worth. (more on the rest of the story later.)
